  55. 55. OPENID VS. FACEBOOK CONNECT VS. GOOGLE FRIEND CONNECT Derek Gallo Eden
  56. 56. OpenID vs. Facebook Connect vs. Friend Connect What’s The Difference? Derek Gallo http://nfistudios.com
  57. 57. The Problem People are getting sick of registering and re- declaring their friends on every site. Developing quot;Social Applicationsquot; is too much work.
  58. 58. Identity Federation The assembled identity, of a person's user information across multiple systems
  59. 59. Social Graph The interconnections among people, groups and organizations in a social network
  60. 60. OpenID OpenID is a free and easy way to use a single digital identity across the Internet. Users are identified by a URL at a provider (ex: http://derekgallo.myopenid.com) Users are directed to their provider to identify themselves and then returned back.
  61. 61. OpenID Pros Open Source! Multiple Providers (Yahoo, AOL, Google, ...) No Central Control of User Data Largest Pool of Users(kinda). Possibilities limited by developer imagination
  62. 62. OpenID Cons Requires application development to utilize (although it is a standard) Only addresses Authentication although can be combined with other standards (Social Graph API, Portable Contacts, OpenID Attribute Exchange) Most non-technical users are unaware of it or don’t understand it.
  63. 63. The Open Stack

  118. 118. FREELANCE IN THE NEW ECONOMY Cory Collier
  119. 119. Freelance In The New Economy By me. (with a lot of help from freelanceswitch.com)
  120. 120. Prioritize Clients Not all clients are created equal. Because of this, you should not spend equal time and resources for each of your clients
  121. 121. Evaluate Current Clients Make a list of the pros / cons of your clients
  122. 122. Figure out who is awesome Clients that are Stable  Pay on time  Pay well  Have potential for new work 
  123. 123. Figure out who sucks Clients that : Don't pay  Unstable  Morally objectionable 
  124. 124. Keep one main client Of your awesome clients, pick one that's most stable, and try to make it at least a simple majority of your work (50.1%).
  125. 125. Have an interesting client Everyone likes something other than work. Find a client that's doing work that you'd like to do if you weren't a freelancer. If you like comic books, get a comic book client.
  126. 126. Find New Clients After you've figured out who the clients are that you want to keep, you'll probably need to figure out where new work is coming in from.
  127. 127. Old Skool Networking Facebook is cool, but the bar is better.
  128. 128. U Need Communication Skillz When you're at the bar, shut-up. If someone is talking to you, they want to talk _to_ you. Don't interrupt people. Be polite. Be friendly. Be geniune.
  129. 129. Use CoLab There's this awesome place to get work / opportunity. Use it.
  130. 130. When it's time to work, do it Don't even look at your XBox bad
  131. 131. Don't Be Flaky If the work starts to suck, don't flake out. Remember that it sucked, and don't get more work like that. Don't ever bitch out.
  132. 132. Figure out what makes you productive, and get more of that in your work life
  133. 133. “Hustle” It's true.
  134. 134. Save Money. If you're making good money, stock some away. Eventually, money will dry up. Cash flow problems is the number 1 killer of businesses
  135. 135. Don't wait for government Politics aside, nobody is going to save you. Don't be a victim of circumstance. You're an entrepreneur
  136. 136. Don't burn out!!!
  137. 137. Find what inspires you, and get more of that. Inspiration is work, what gasoline is to cars
  138. 138. Get more info (Google it) Don't listen to me. I don't know what I'm doing.
